I'm working on a project that will involve your stories about anything to do with customer service. If you currently work retail, formerly worked retail, never worked but have shopped retail, watched someone shop retail, tried to sell something on Cafe Press or Craigslist, etc., I want to hear your stories, dammit!
I want good, bad, funny, unfair, horrifying, and amusing stories from customers and retail slaves alike and I want absolutely no censorship! I WANT to hear about that damn cashier who refused to honor your expired coupon despite your loyalty as a customer. I WANT to hear about the horrors found when you were assigned to clean the public bathroom. I WANT to hear about that dick that wrote you a bad check, or was a no-show when you absolutely needed to get rid of that fucking ugly couch in your living room. I WANT to hear about that creepy old man who smells like cheese and hits on employees who just finished puberty. I WANT to hear about that incompetent asshole who couldn't sell anything through a wet paper bag. You can even tell me about that guy in that department who steals people's lunches from the break room. This project cannot be awesome without your contribution, so TELL ME!
